 375 g all-purpose Robin Hood flour (3 cups)
 250 ml of warm milk (1 cup)
 1 tsp  instant dry yeast
 3 tbsp.  of sugar
 1 tsp  vanilla essence
 3 tbsp.  of soft butter or margarine
 3 egg yolks
 1/2 tsp  of salt
 1 tbsp  lemon zest
 Sugar to decorate


 Dissolve the yeast in warm milk and mix with the flour, vanilla essence and lemon zest.  Apart, beat the egg yolks with the sugar until you get a cream and add it to the flour mixture.

Then add the salt and knead well until you get a smooth and homogeneous dough. Finally add the butter (or margarine) per tablespoons in 3 steps, kneading well after each tablespoon, until the dough is soft and elastic.

Make a dough ball and place it in a bowl greased with oil and cover with plastic cooking.  Put it in the oven off with the light on and let it ferment for 2 hours.  

Then, knead to take out the air and prepare a baking sheet smearing it with oil.  Stretch the dough and place it on the tray giving it a round shape.  Cover it and let it stand for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 200 ° C for 15 minutes.  Then, make small holes in the focaccia surface with greased fingers, sprinkle abundant sugar and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
